Two Requests: write dvd.xml file, remember "preserve DVD menu"

I’ve been using using Slysoft product for years - thanks for the great software and frequent updates

Here are 2 features I’d love to see in CloneDVD:

1. Create DVD.xml file when ripping: Now that AnyDVD correctly preservers the DVD ID, it would be great if CloneDVD would create the appropriate dvd.xml file when ripping. This would allow Windows Media Center (and the My Movies plug-in) to correctly identify the contents of folders and automatically download cover art and movie details. It’s a bother to create the file manually each time I rip a movie. I would be elated if this could be handled by AnyDVD. (Perhaps this option could be configured on the same page as “create video_ts directory” option.)

2. Remember to leave the “Preserve DVD Menus” box checked: I like to keep the entire contents of DVDs intact when I rip them. (I love having the menus and bonus features.) Unfortunately, I sometimes forget to click the “Preserve DVD Menus” box when ripping a movie, so I have to re-rip it. It would be great if Clone DVD remembered the previous setting so I don’t have to remember to check it every time I copy (or re-copy) a DVD.

Again, thanks for the great software!

FYI, here is a sample dvd.xml file. There could either be a prompt for movie name, or the disc name could be used.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Disc>
		<Name>Michael Clayton</Name>
		<ID>98565C5D|ECF0530C</ID>
</Disc>

Any possibility of these features making it into the released version? Do I need to post on the SlySoft forum instead?

I would post on the SS forum your more likely to get a quicker reply.

I created a thread on the Slysoft forum. To be honest, I didn’t know they had a forum until yesterday. Here is the thread:
